In his role as an independent consultant in Coloured Diamonds, Michael Bohdjalian promotes acquisition of coloured diamonds at various levels of investment. He possesses valuable expertise in the area and understands the best of breed market, which helps to ensure a ratio of low risk returns to the client. His transparent advice has proven to be both trustworthy and reliable. He is an expert in every colour of diamond, including the most rare of all colours; the red diamonds. Since there are fewer than 20 diamonds in the world with the red classification, the prices range from $1m per carat and above. The next rarest of all coloured diamonds are the green stones, which more than often also contain brown, grey or yellow. Blue diamonds are one of the most highly sought after colours, partly due to the recent royal wedding. Pink diamonds come from only one mine, which is set to be closed in the coming years. They come from the Argyle mine in Australia and are a favourite of celebrities because of their explosive colours. The most common, of course, are yellow, or canary diamonds, which make for a good entry level investment.
